NEXT UP: #1 Plains Zebra (Equus quagga) & Yellow-Billed Oxpecker (Buphagus africanus) vs #8 seed Aardvark (Orycteropus afer) & Aardvark Cucumber (Cucumis humifructus) #2019MMM
In Round 1, Oxpecker (& Zebra) picked off the Batfly (& Gammaproteobacteria). Aardvark & Cucurbit advanced against #Tripletrouble monkeys in an epic #BeastieBoys Battle #2019MMM
Why do Zebras have stripes? Scientists had thought these stripes were anti-predator devices, making it difficult for predators to cue in on 1 individual among the herd (called disruptive coloration) #2019MMM

NEXT UP: #8 seed Aardvark (Orycteropus afer) & Aardvark Cucumber (Cucumis humifructus) vs #9 seed Monkey #TripleTrouble of Goeldi's Monkey (Callimico goeldii) & Saddleback Tamarin (Saguinus fuscicollis) & White-lipped Tamarin (Saguinus labiatus) #CallitrichineCrew #2019MMM
Aardvarks are distributed in Africa, south of the Sahara. "Aardvark" is Afrikaans for "Earth Pig" bc Aardvarks have a boopable snoot & they use their formidable claws to dig burrows in the ground; excavate ant & termite mounds. #2019MMM
But the Aardvark is a bit of a foodie & appreciates a salad garnish. #AlsoDontActuallyBoopTheSnoot #2019MMM
